All|Overs 1-50
W

to Warner, out Caught by Buttler!! Edged and taken! Ideal start for England, just what the doctor ordered. Full length delivery and shaping away from the batsman, Warner is caught in the crease as he fends at it and gets an outside edge. Buttler won't miss those and he does't. End of the pocket-size dynamite. Game on! Warner c Buttler b 2(4)

4

to Chris Lynn, FOUR, announces his arrival in style, does Chris Lynn. This is how he plays. Goes after a shortish delivery and slaps it over cover-point to get off the mark. "See ball - hit ball," just the way he likes

4

Curran to Chris Lynn, FOUR, shot boy! Picks the bones out of this one. Short delivery outside off, Lynn throws his bat at it and times that over covers. On a bounce and over the fence

4

Curran to Chris Lynn, FOUR, power in that, brutal. Picks the slower delivery and square cuts that with absolute disdain. Pierces the gap on the off-side and meets the fence

6

Curran to Chris Lynn, SIX, slaughtered! Another slower delivery gets the deserving treatment. Full and slow on off, stands tall and smokes it right over the bowler's head. Hits the sightscreen on the full

4

to D Arcy Short, FOUR, can't stop that! No chance. Short and width on offer, Short frees his arms and cuts it hard. Third man tries to cut that down but it rushes away

4

to D Arcy Short, FOUR, minimum footwork and maximum result! Fullish outside off, stays put and drills it through covers. It's a boundary, once it pierces the field. Contrasting starts for the two teams

6

to Chris Lynn, SIX, full toss, and it's out of here. On the pads and nonchalantly flicks it. High and handsome, over the fine leg boundary

4

to Chris Lynn, FOUR, running out of adjectives! A juicy full toss on middle and leg, Lynn moves away and puts it away. In the air and over the fielder at mid-on

W

to Chris Lynn, out Caught by Buttler!! Short ball does the trick. He was going after everything and finally a short one does him. Goes for the pull but the top-edge balloons up in the air. Buttler calls for it and gulps it down and an entertaining cameo by Lynn comes to an end with that. Australia need 87 off 87. That number!! Chris Lynn c Buttler b 31(19) [4s-4 6s-2]

4

Dawson to D Arcy Short, FOUR, firmly struck! Tossed up delivery, but the line was wide of off, Short stands tall and thumps it down the ground. No chance for long-on to stop that

6

Dawson to D Arcy Short, SIX, even better. Now, Dawson overpitches, enough room there for Short to swing his bat hard and loft it over long-on. A clean strike

6

Dawson to Maxwell, SIX, 19 from the over and the required rate is now below 6. This was bowled slower by Dawson, Maxwell stays leg-side of the ball, waits for it to come to him and dispatches it into the cow corner fence with a mighty swing of the bat

4

Rashid to Maxwell, FOUR, finally gets a boundary with his pet shot - reverse sweep. All too cheek! There wasn't too much width on this flat ball just outside off. Gets enough bat on it and the ball trickles away fine of the short third man fielder. 1000 T20I runs for Maxi!

4

Rashid to Maxwell, FOUR, hammered! Too full and around off, bludgeoned over the bowler's head

6

Rashid to Maxwell, SIX, the Big Show is in the mood. Another in-drifter that ends up right in Maxwell's slot. Takes the left leg out of his way and smites it over deep mid-wicket

4

Rashid to Maxwell, FOUR, 4, 4, 6 and now another 4. Maxwell is just toying with Rashid. Rashid bowls a flatter ball, doesn't matter for Maxwell, who hacks it over mid-wicket with a big heave. Finds the gap between long-on and deep mid-wicket

OT

Rashid to D Arcy Short, no run, an appeal for caught-behind and the umpire shakes his head in disapproval. England decide to review. Fair delivery. A leg-spin turning down leg, Short goes for the glance and the ball definitely brushes the pad before settling into the mitts of the keeper. No spot on HotSpot and no spike on the UltraEdge. The onfield call stays. England lose their only review

W

to Maxwell, out Caught by Buttler!! Maxwell is gone, but he has done the damage. It was banged in short by and the Victorian all-rounder wanted to flat-bat it over the bowler's head. All he manages is a top-edge, which balloons up and settles into the safe gloves of Buttler. Maxwell c Buttler b 39(26) [4s-3 6s-2]

4

to Finch, FOUR, short again and Finch goes for the pull, although he wasn't in a good position. Gets it off his glove and hence the ball went very fine. Beats the diving fine leg fielder and Finch notches up his maiden boundary

4

to Finch, FOUR, another mistimed shot and another boundary. That's the power of Finch. Off the inside part of the bat. This was bowled on the fuller side and Finch went hard on the drill. The ball found the gap between mid-on and rolled away

6

to Finch, SIX, oh my goodness! That's been absolutely muscled. He backed away even before the ball was delivered. It was a slower ball, the local boy waited for the ball and bludgeoned it over long-on for a massive six. Incredible hit

6

to Finch, SIX, Finch finishes it off with a couple of sixes. bangs one short and provides width outside off which allows the batter to free his arms. Finch hops and upper-cuts it behind square on the off-side. Well over the boundary rope in the third man region and Australia win by 7 wickets

4

Richardson to Roy, FOUR, that short ball sat up and Roy's pulled that through mid-wicket. Not even a dive in the deep can save this

W

to Hales, out Caught by Finch!! That's a good catch by Finch. Turns back from mid-on and tracks a few paces, keeps his eyes on the ball and takes it comfortably on his comeback from injury. Hales misjudged the length here. Not short enough to be mowing over cow corner. Hales went for it and skewed it up off the cue end. Hales c Finch b 3(3)

W

Richardson to Roy, out Caught by Carey!! Even cheeky would have done but this was plain lame, steering that straight to the keeper. Roy wanted runs to the third man region, even played late to be all deft but was undone by a bit of extra bounce. Two wickets in two overs, both openers cooked. Roy c Carey b Richardson 8(7) [4s-1]

4

Richardson to James Vince, FOUR, well wide of Lynn at slip. Not too short but wide yeah, which allows James Vince to stay leg-side of the ball and steer the ball uppishly to third man

4

Richardson to James Vince, FOUR, deflects off Carey's gloves! And the rebound was far from Lynn. There's bounce in this pitch, told ya. James Vince wants another uppish cut sort of steer to third man but top-edges this time. Gets lucky

4

to Malan, FOUR, nicely played. 140ks short ball going across him, and he's arched back to ramp it over to the third man boundary

W

to Malan, out Malan Run Out!! Rub your eyes, for Warner's pulled off another in the field. Was just defended to him at mid-off, with Malan trying to retain the strike after ramping a boundary last ball. But Warner is Warner: attacks the ball, leaps, and releases the ball into a flat throw whilst air-borne. Direct hit at the bowler's end. Malan doesn't even wait for the third umpire. Malan run out (Warner) 10(10) [4s-1]

OT

Richardson to Buttler, no run, blocked to short cover. To Maxwell of all people. Vince was halfway down the track there and was cooked if there was a direct-hit

4

to Buttler, FOUR, don't think he was in control of this pull entirely. Goes for it nonetheless and finds the vacant areas at long leg

4

to Buttler, FOUR, makes room and drills out a yorker length delivery through covers. Nicely placed and timed, wide of the extra cover fielder

W

Tye to James Vince, out Bowled!! If you can bowl like Tye, bowl them lots. Many things right about this delivery in the modern context: drifting in, slower delivery, dipping trajectory and yorker length too. James Vince had no clue. Cannot keep that out to third man. Timbah. James Vince b Tye 21(21) [4s-2]

6

to Billings, SIX, that's Billings for you. A 94-metre monster! Shimmies down the wicket and smokes the loopy delivery over the long-on fence. Half a dozen for Sam with that towering hit

OT

to Billings, 1 run, a direct-hit and Billings was gone! Tucks it to mid-wicket and sets off for a run. It was Buttler's call and Billings went fot it. Maxi at short mid-wicket had a shy at the bowler's end but couldn't score

OT

to Billings, no run, decision overturned! Tried to ramp the shortish delivery over the keeper but the ball clipped his thigh pad before it went straight into his mitts. HotSpot confirms the same and Billings stays

4

to Billings, FOUR, nicely done! Fired down the leg, Billings gets down on his knee and sweeps that down to fine leg. No fielder in the deep and easy pickings for the batsman

4

Tye to Billings, FOUR, that's a terrific shot! Changes grip and reverse pulls the short delivery over short third man. T20 cricket and the range of shots. Unbelievable!

4

to Billings, FOUR, Sam Billings is turning it on! Moves away and clubs the full length delivery past the fielder at mid-off. Power and timing, immaculate

4

to Billings, FOUR, clobbered! Drags the length back, Billings picks it up and flat bats it over mid-on for another boundary

W

to Billings, out Caught by Warner!! has the last laugh. After conceding consecutive boundaries comes back strongly and gets his man. Bangs it short on off and Billings looks to go after it again. Can't get the desired timing on that and ends up miscuing it to mid-off. Warner takes a safe catch and Billings departs. Billings c Warner b 29(23) [4s-4 6s-1]

4

to Buttler, FOUR, edged but safe! Swings hard at the full length delivery and gets an outside edge. Flies past the leaping keeper and meets the fence

4

Tye to Willey, FOUR, how do you describe that shot? Periscope, says Mark Taylor. Shortish delivery on leg, waits for the it and hangs his bat at it, comes off the back of the blade and runs down to fine leg

4

Richardson to Willey, FOUR, lucky! Short delivery on off, moves away and swings hard. Comes off the top-edge and flies over the keeper's head. England will take those runs, no matter how they come

W

Richardson to Willey, out Caught by Warner!! He was throwing his bat at everything, this was inevitable. Goes after a shortish delivery and gets no where close to timing it. Comes off the toe-end, balloons towards covers where the skipper swallows it. Willey c Warner b Richardson 10(6) [4s-2]

W

Richardson to Buttler, out Caught by Agar!! Wicket on the last ball as Agar takes a good running catch at long-on. Played a short arm-jab to a fullish delivery but couldn't clear the long-on fence. Buttler c Agar b Richardson 46(49) [4s-3]
